Music On Vinyl
“Blow-Up” is a soundtrack album by Herbie Hancock featuring music composed for Michelangelo Antonioni‘s cult film “Blow-Up“, released in 1966. Musically the songs evoke the ambience of swinging Sixties’ London with grooves that create effective bluesy Jazz moods on the slow pieces, and funky ones on the up-tempo tracks.
The album features performances by Hancock on keys, Freddie Hubbard and Joe Newman on trumpet, Phil Woods and Joe Henderson on sax, Ron Carter on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Rumours go that either the fabled Jimmy Smith or Paul Griffin played the Hammond organ on this record.
